Good to know there’s plenty to cut:
A taxpayer-funded quango has spent millions of pounds on “woke” projects including decolonising a collection of 120,000 dried plants, it has emerged.
UKRI, the government body responsible for funding research and innovation, is accused of spending £27 million of public funds on “embarrassing” and “low-grade” projects.
This includes research that aims to decolonise collections of music and sculptures and a project that will explore the representation of gender and LGBTQI+ people in castle histories.
Obviously, this is all important stuff but we’re skint. Try coming back next decade.
